If "something" were to happen (not saying that Hojuman would actually do it) do you think there's a way we would take both, and how would they be used in the team if we did, going on the team make-up that we've seen on the field this season Souup?

It's hard to see both being around at our picks but you never know.

Massimo = Should play a Jayden Short type distributor role off the back flank. Would be our best kick instantly out of defense and should be given kick-out duties.

El Nour = Should play as a loose man or 3rd tall with a fair bit of liberty to play off his man and intercept. Embarrassingly, he would instantly become our best kick out of defense after probably Massimo.

"Yeh pressure got to me, I choked. You put your hand up and just have to say wasn't my day..

(journalist asks question in background) ..

..How's he going? No idea, um haven't tracked him at all since we delisted him to be honest with you. Don't really know how we're going to get out of this one mate."
You jest but 100% this is Mid Season Draft Night

I weirdly hoping we don't drop down to pick #1 in the MSD. Making the choice between Culley and D'Ambrosio would be really difficult.

Getting a 2nd pick would be ideal as well, fingers crossed El Nour or Derksen drop to that kind of range.

Rather have pick one, have the choice and get our first preference. Weird I know.

Is Massimo predicted to be a future outside mid/wingman or a running halfback type (Aaron Hall) or a ball user type (Caleb Daniel)?

The concern I have is the plethora of similar players we already have?

What does it mean for Hayden, Atu, Bergman, Goater, Bonar, Young, McDonald, Archer, P Walker, Hall, Turner, Perez, McGuiness?

There is only so many you can play and at a guess, I think 5 or 6 on a list would suffice? 2 in seniors and 2 in VFL? 2 developing or specialist roles e.g. lockdown defender or play maker (Caleb Daniel type).

I would say we are going to keep Hall, McDonald, Perez, Goater and Bergman for next year.

If we select Massimo does that mean all of Hayden, Atu, Young, Turner, P Walker, McGuiness, Bonar all get delisted?

No point having so many players on the list who won’t be playing?
